Re: Loosen ANY lug nut

When I buy any used car, this is what I do for the wheels to avoid seized wheels: 1. Jack up each wheel. 2. Remove all the lugs and remove the wheel. If the wheel is seized onto the hub (snow area with salt), there is trick in forum to undo it, search for the tricks. 3. Apply anti-seize around the h...

Re: 2007 2.4 vvt tension release on timing belt job

- If you have done the 98 V70, then the VVT model timing belt job is somewhat similar. - As long as you don't remove the VVT hub, then it is simple. All the engine cares is: all 3 lines up (crank and 2 VVT cam gears). - Mark the gears with whiteout paint before removing old belt. - Use only Volvo Ge...

Re: Loosen ANY lug nut

- I always add a tiny bit of wheel bearing grease (about one drop). This way next time it is easier. Have used this trick for 30 years. - Don't scratch the paint work with your breaker bar! - A guy on youtube used floor jack to undo the AXLE NUT and it work, see video below... https://www.youtube.co...

Re: Replace ball joints with control arms? ('04 XC)

I don't know if Volvo has changed the bushing formulation, but the control arms in my 2005 XC90 2.5T with 120K are still original.

They (control arms as a whole) need to be replaced soon, but the bushings in Volvo Genuine control arm have been very good.

Re: Replace ball joints with control arms? ('04 XC)

Most people would say: - Ball joints: Lemforder as mentioned. - Control arm, get the arm with bushings already in there to avoid pressing in bushings (you need a heavy-duty press to push the new bushing in if you buy control arm w/o bushings!). Just buy the Volvo control arms which already has the b...

Re: 2005 XC90, No fuel pressure

My 2005 XC90 2.5T with 120K still has the original PEM. I have a used PEM from junk yard. I keep the used PEM in the trunk as spare, just in case.

Re: Cost of Strut Mount Replacement on 2004 S60

I usually do everything (bearing, strut mount, struts etc.) b/c the labor is the same. Too bad the shop only replaced the mount. They should have done the whole thing since they already took everything apart. Next time, search FCPEuro for "quick struts", which you can install yourself as it is simpl...

Re: 04 V70, N/A, serpentine belt, mystery to me

I use the "Serpentine Belt Tool".
Basically a flat piece of iron and 3/8" square head.

You can get the tool at Harbor Freight for $18:
